Gauge

24 stitches x 36 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4 x 4 inches] (in stocking stitch on a 3.00 mm [US2½] needle).

NOTE: ensure that you have the correct row gauge (not just stitch gauge), this is very important for leg length because of the lace panel repeats. Gauge in the suggested yarn is measured after washing and blocking of a swatch.

Suggested needle size

3.00 mm [US2½] circular needle and 3.00 mm [US2½] double-pointed needles for legs (unless using magic loop method). To work the picot trim at the bottom of the legs I recommended using either a short 3.00 mm [US2½] circular needle or double-pointed needles.
